Lakers to Wear Short-Sleeve & Also Black Jerseys Next Season

Lakers to Wear Short-Sleeve & Also Black Jerseys Next Season

Postby Ariza3 on Tue Aug 20, 2013 12:28 pm

Dave McMenamin: The Lakers will wear short-sleeve jerseys next season, according to a team source. LAL's will be white and they'll wear them "several" games Twitter @mcten


UPDATE: Lakers also wearing black jerseys for select games next season! :jam2: :man13: :jam2:

...The Lakers will also be adding a black jersey to their uniform rotation next season, according to a league source. The alternative uniform will be part of the league's city pride series, joining the Detroit Pistons' upcoming "Motor City" uniforms and the Portland Trail Blazers' "Rip City" set, but unlike the others, it will still say "Lakers" across the chest. The lettering and numerals will appear in purple with gold outlines and the rest of the jersey material will be primarily black, with some gold accents, the source said. It will not have sleeves, the source added...

I hate the white and I hate the sleeved. Together, sounds vile.

I'd prefer no sleeves, but I'd be all for a tighter fitting jersey.

The white doesn't bother me at all.

Interesting to see the Lakers trying to move forward into more modern concepts though.

As long as it isn't the old school short shorts, It'll be fine.

This sounds like the short shorts stuff again.... that game is still one of my least favorite of the last decade..... both for the outcome and visually.

^ Well, short shorts are for retro.

These are supposed to be designed for aerodynamics/to keep loose jerseys from happening.

If they looked like anything like the summer league jerseys we wore, :hurl:

What he said.

Those huge jerseys have to be left behind. I mean, Kobe wears an XXXL jersey, those are so baggy and really don't look good.

Now, short shorts... yeah, those are retro and I am OK with them here and there, but they don't look very good either. Neither do those super long "shorts" that are also too baggy.

Tighter fitting and normal length jerseys/shorts. :shaq:

Yeah sleeves are no sleeves dont make a difference to me but I'd be for more slimmer streamlined jerseys. Wearing baggy jerseys with excess material and weight is counter productive to performance.

I think short sleeve jerseys are ugly as hell, for example the ones I saw the other day the Suns are wearing

This isn't soccer, or college, it's the NBA. Yeah, it's just a jersey and I'll get over it, but I like our tradition of having great jerseys. So personally, not looking forward to this.

Don't care for the concept of short sleeve uniforms. Couple that with the short shorts, might as well advertise for Hanes.

I'm actually ok with it as long as the design isn't terrible. And I loved the white jerseys, so happy they will be back.

Rather have better fitting jerseys than baggy jersey's. If these were around when Bowen played he wouldn't be clutching and grabbing so much.

I don't mind the Sunday white jerseys either although Jackson once quipped the squad looked like fairies on the court.

Jeanie Buss? It's the NBA that wants to transition to sleeved jerseys to make them more popular to wear outside of sporting events.
